In an aim to help students from the backward sections shine in their career and continue their studies, Touching Souls International has initiated a number of student assistance programs. Poverty is one of the main causes why lots of students in the rural areas are forced to give up their studies and earn their living. Illiteracy ranks among the major problems in Bangladesh and our student aids are a way to make an end to this menace.
One of the main projects that have been undertaken under the students’ assistance programs is the student merit scholarships. In this scheme, students who study between the 5th and 12th standards are awarded scholarships according to their grades and education performance. Both full time and part time scholarship programs are awarded based on the performance and financial requirements. We have a review board consisting of expert academicians and teachers who take the final decision regarding the students to whom the scholarship will be awarded. This is mainly done to ensure that fair practice takes place.
Apart from the scholarship programs, we also provide financial assistance to schools in remote villages. Our aim is to provide a good education infrastructure to students in the remote villages. In this regard, we have started a number of school funding projects in the districts of Munshiganj and Kishoreganj. The main objective of these school funding programs is to upgrade the overall maintenance and basic facilities so that students find a good place to study.
Every child deserves education no matter what the conditions. Children must be educated to change themselves, the society and the world. In some countries, the education system is run by governments, private bodies, charities or other bodies to deliver planned and quality education to the children of the society. In developing countries like Bangladesh, parents of many children in villages are unable to send their children to schools, since they earn a small amount of money, most of which is spent on food.
Touching soul’s International’s mission has been to unleash the rural power to enhance the quality of life of rural people. They have been trying to educate deprived children in rural areas in Bangladesh with their charity work. Kids need to understand ethics, empathy, basic rights and freedoms, compassion, and responsibility to make for them a position in the society. Touching Souls International has made their dreams of going to school come true by providing them with free education, along with stationery and books. By giving the opportunity of education to village and slum kids this nonprofit organization is helping them discover their creativity and encouraging them to find what they like and are good at, they can become more productive members of our society.
